ESPN, in their Bracketology column, now has Memphis projected as going to the Big Dance. They have us as the favorite to win the C-USA tournament and earn an automatic bid, getting the #12 seed in the West. Thanks to sports writer Doc Hancock (@DocHancock) for mentioning this on Twitter earlier today.
Hey, you know who I don’t see in those projections? Tennessee. It’d be awesome if we made it to the NCAA tourney while Bruce Pearl was sitting at home watching it on TV… you know, like he’ll be doing for the next four SEC games.
Envision Fitness and Mona Spa, on the third floor of the Cadre Building at Second and Monroe, are having a Wine, Cheese, Reflexology & Massage Night tomorrow night, Tuesday 1/25, from 5:30 to 8:30. Meet Gail, Mona’s new addition, and enjoy learning about reflexology from her and get chair massages from Nathan. Chilean wines from North Berkeley imports and cheese. Free cheese? Wonder if the Nuh-Uh Girl will show up.
MemphisWeather.net has blogged that we have another possibility of winter weather Tuesday night. Models indicate this one will happen after rush hour Tuesday evening. One model predicts 3″ of snow, the other (which MemphisWeather.net tends to believe more) predicts less than 1″. I hope the 3″ prediction is the accurate one, so we can get a SNOW DAY on Wednesday!
Grizz, the Memphis Grizzlies mascot, is personally delivering Grizz Grams on Valentine’s Day. Grams include Grizz items, two tickets to an upcoming game, and a night’s stay at Harrah’s Tunica. Call 901-205-1416 to order. Keep in mind that Grizz can only be in one place at a time (he’s not Santa, after all) so there’s only a limited number of these he can deliver. If you want one, order now. (and hope that you and your significant other don’t break up between now and V-Day)
Bar None has started a Monday trivia night. Specials are $2.50 pints and $5 half-yards of beer. Starts at 7:30.
I’m now hearing that the Silly Goose poker night is starting at 10. Heard that from one of the bartenders on Facebook, haven’t confirmed with Poker Jon.
Hmmm. 10:00. That gives me four hours at Pint Nite. Just about right.
